GNU Emacs is the extensible self-documenting text editor. This is a metapackage that will always depend on the latest recommended Emacs variant (currently emacs-gtk).

Good for proof assistants like Leanprover and Agda. Bad because very english centric with too much terminology to memorise. This was really easy to install on Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon tho!

For VIM fans: Use what you like, why would you come bashing emacs here? And we're not even talking same things. eMacs is a full-blown IDE for any languages, and not even just that, it's an OS within an OS basically. It even has by default applications like web-browser, file-manager, IRC-client, etc. etc. and can even run as Window Manager. It's not comparable to VIM - it's like comparing nano or Windows NotePad to full IDE.

There is only one editor! Emacs has been my favourite for over 30 years

At first it appears to be complicated but it is worth the effort

You can find a better editor for a particular programming language. You won't find a better one if you use multiple languages.

Dude no, use VIM instead. Emacs is evil and will give you ass cancer.

slime, org-mode, supports everything under the sun -- with common, but customizable keybindings, extensible and thoroughly hypertextual.. what could _possibly_ be better?

First app I install in a new distribution. If you write code, it's worth the effort to learn.
